versity. Kexampje of that Lutheran tradition 


. includes community service and 
campus fellowship. With this veneration in 
mind, the sign of the fish is ttie Kairos' symbol 
for 1996-97. 

' . .a. '*• - ' 

Early Christians, who endured heavy persecu- 
tion because of their faith, recognized each 
other by this sign. A Christian who drew 
half a fish in the sand waited to see if the 
other person completed it. If the design was 
completed, they were then ablel to speak 
freely of their faith. 

Although the symbol is not used for that pur- 
pose today, it is important because it is still 
associated with Christianity. 

Kairos' theme this year is "Go out iato 
all the world" (Mark 16:15). Students are 
reminded to share their knowledge and expe- 
riences of Cal Lutheran with those tliey know 
and those whom they will meet. 

The journey began at CLU with many ex- 
periences which prepared students to 
serve others. Now, as they leave, mak- 
Jjig their way "into all the world," this grad- 
uating class has the rare opportunity to go forth 
anal||ke a difference... to draw the other half 
of the fish in the sand.

Each year CLU celebrates the Christian lega- 
cy of Santa Lucia. Tliis commemorates the 
faith and martyrdom of a young Sicilian noble 
woman of the fourth century. Persecuted for 
her Christian beliefs, she was blinded. Mirac- 
ulously, her eyesight was restored, but she 
died at the stake on December 13, 304 A.D. 

She is remembered as the patron saint of 
afflicted eyes, and her life is celebrated in a 
festival of lights symbolizing the faith, hope, 
and compassion that she exemplified. 

The ceremony included the telling of San- 
ta Lucia's story to the Santa Lucia Court and 
the Santa Lucia message that wasgiven by the 
Lucia bride. 

CLU students nominate one woman and 
one man from each class on the evicience of 
these qualities in their lives. Senior Heather 
Embree was elected as Santa Lucia. Her 
escort was Matt Preston. 

The women nominated as Santa Lucia's at- 
tendants were Senior Heidi Person, Junior 

Kim Roden, Sophomore Christine Lintvedt, 
and Freshman Sara Larcome. They wore 
white robes and held candles tied with red. 

Heather, representing Lucia, was dressed 
in a a white robe trimmed with a red slash 
and wore a crown with lit candles. The male 
escorts were Senior Tim Johnson, Junior Brad 
Bjelke, Junior Lawrence Rodriguez, and 
Freshman Dan Roschke. 

The annual ceremony reminds students to 
lead a virtuous life. 

Peter Berg and Kim Roden light the 
cro>vn of Heather Embree, Santa Lucia, 
at the ceremony just before Christmas. 

Just after the ceremony Heather Embree, Heidi Person, Kim 
Roden, and Sara Larcome take a picture. The escorts were Tim 
Johnson, Brad Bjelke, Dan Roschke, and Matt Preston.

crov/n to CLU.

It was a week of fun and excitement for Cal 
J Lutheran students, alumni, faculty, administra- 
tion and community who celebrated the 32nd 
Homecoming Week. During the week of October 
13-19, CLU carried out this year's theme "Mardi 
Gras" with special flair of New Orleans. 

The week began with the hall decorating con- 
test where student residents from each hall deco- 
rated the hall into a Mardi Gras palace. First place 
winner was Pederson Hall, second place was 
New West, and third place was Old West. 

Following the hall decorating event came 
mask decorating. Students were able to design 
masks to wear to the Homecoming Dance or just 
aroimd campus. Later that week a few students 
participated in a dating game that took place in 
the cafeteria during a special cajun dinner. 
Students participating were able to choose their 
dates for the Homecoming Dance. Eric Handke 
was lucky enough to match up with Christine 
Lintv'edt during the game. Other participants 
included. Amy Waters, Jason Chronister, Julie 
Harris and Danielle Gumi. 

As the week of fun unwound, the annual 
Coronation ceremony for the crowning of the 
1996 Homecoming King and Queen were 
announced and crowned. The King was Senior 
Matt Preston and the Queen was Senior Heather 

A carnival then followed on Memorial 
Parkway where the street was transformed into 
an attraction park that included a ferris wheel, a 
big air slide, obstacle course, club game booths, a 
gyroscope and the band Naked Jumpies. 

Saturday morning was host to the annual

while others waved. The best float was chosen by 
six judges who voted New West's float as the first 
place winner, the Senior Pride Committee's float 
came in as second place and Old West's float came 
in as third. 

The night ended with the dance that was held in 
the Pavilion. Students enjoyed the music while 
dancing the night away. □

C"LU" Down, held on October 4, 1996 was sponsored 
by Inter-Club Council and the Educational Program- 
ming Office. The night began at 8 pm with 
line dancing lessons. The Tush Push, Carribean Cowboy, 
and a simple Two Step were some of the dances taught. 
Country Events' disk jockey, Ed, continued 
the evening with the Macarena; not a traditional 
country dance but fun for all. Later that evening they had 
a contest while doing the Two Step to see who was 
the best. 

There were many other activities besides dancing, 
such as the jail, different tables and waiting for the cow 
to "plop". 

The only thing the calf plopped in the "Cow 
Plop." contest was his little body when he laid down 
to go to sleep. Julie Baumgartener, coordinator of the 
event, decided Orlando Avila and Erin Baumgartener 
would split the prize money of $50, since the calf 
took his nap Ln their boxes. 

The "Sheriff Association" of Old West RHA had fun 
arresting people throughout the night. Amy Waters (Old 

West President), Amanda Damien (Old West Treasurer), 
and Amanda's brother Greg Damien were the law en- 
forcement for the evening. All of the inmates decided to 
serve their five minute sentence rather than pay 50 cents 
for bail. 

The Latin American Student Organization (L.A.S.O.) 
sold drinks and nachos to the hungry cowboys & cow- 
girls. In addition, other clubs participated including: 
Rowing, which sold key chains; the senior Class, who 
sold drinks; and Rotaract Club. 

"Larkspur" also provided entertainment throughout 
the evening between sessions with the disc jockey. A rep- 
resentafive from Borderline country bar gave out CD's, 
Borderline passes and T-shirts to people who answered 
coimtry music trivia quesfions, CLU trivia questions, or 
showed off something unusual or uncommon. Michele 
MoUer was the first girl to show her tattoo. Matt Wiemero 
was the first guy to show lipstick on his Ups and Paul- 
Andre White named the year CLU was founded. 

Overall, the 3rd annual Lu Down was a hit again, 
thanks to the hard work of everyone involved.

that never did plop.

Regents Choir 




The all-women's choir of CLU is Regents Choir. The Regents 
have opportunities to perform at chapel services as well as 
the Annvial Fall Convocation Service, Fall Concert, Christmas 
Concert, and the Spring Concert. 

At the Fall Concert they sang Tico Motels which included 
"Veni Domine" and "Laudate pueri." For the Christmas 
Concert they sang a French carol, "Turo-Louro-Louro" and a 
Spanish lullaby, "A La Rorro Nino.' In addition, they have also 
had the opportunity to sing in Norwegian. Regents also sang 
"Long Long Ago" and other traditional carols at the Christmas 

Rachel Oliveros-Larsen, a Sophomore member of both CLU 
and Regents, said, "I think that Regents is alot of fi.m. We have 
many talented women, and I am proud to be part of it." 

Amanda Young, Freshman, says, "It (Regents) is a great 
group. Dr. Morton is a great director and I really enjoy it. It is 
definitely worth the time and effort." 

The Regents look forward to many great years of singing so 
many different varities of songs.

CLU Choir 


The CLU choir is a mixture of all types of talent. Each 
person has to try out to make the choir with priority to 
Music majors and minors. 

Each year the choir participates in many events 
These concerts, which are sometimes performed with the 
orchestra, include the Fall Founders Day Convocation 
Service, Fall Concert, Christmas Concert, Spring Concert 
and their annual trip. Each year new selections of music are 
chose and the Spring Break tour is at a different location. 
Choir trips have ranged from places such as Northern 
California to Hawaii. 

In addition to the annual concerts and Spring Break trip 
they also go to other places to perform. This year they went 
to the Ronald Regan Library. Dr Morton, the director of the 
CLU Choir, was very happy about the concert that was 
held at the Regan Library. Kari Gravrock, class of '98, joined 
the CLU choir for the first time this year and says, "I'm hav- 
ing a really great time and everyone always encourages 
each other." 

Unlike the Regents choir, the CLU choir showcases the 
talent of both male and female vocalists.

Student Life ^a7 

The CLU Drama Department presented 
the award-winning play "Marvin's 
Room" as a Fall Semester production. When 
asked why Director Ken Gardenr chose to pre- 
sent this moving account of how a life can be 
altered as a result of a diagnosis of Leukemia, 
he responded: "I went to school with the man 
who wrote it, Scott McPherson. 1 loved it and 
had been wanting to do it for several years 
now. This was the last play McPherson wrote 
before his death at 32 from AIDS:" 

Kristina Fresqueze, senior, portrays Bessie 
who has been told that she has leukemia. 
Faced with this devastating diagnoses, she 
must now decide upon the care of her invalid 
father and aunt. Her hope of a cure for 
Leukemia is dependent upon bone marrow 
donated by her estranged sister Lee and Lee's 

two sons. Hank and Charlie. 

Kristina Fresquez summed up her feelings 
regarding her character Bessie by saying: 
"One of the defining characteristics of Bessie 
is her self-giving attitude. She is the kind of 
person who will take care of others before 

The rest of the talented cast included

relationship with 

her sons Hank 

and Charlie.

realizes the full impact of her diagnosis.

/A nother production put on by 
LTUCLU's drama department was 
"You're A Good Man Charlie Brown." 
This was play based on the "Peanuts" 
comic strip by Charles M. Schultz. 

You're a Good Man Charlie 
Brown" was about Charlie Brown 
getting a little help from his friends. 
Like always Charlie Brown was 
down on his luck and couldn't seem 
to do anything right. 

Danielle Gunn said that "It was a 
lot of fun working with Barbara and 
tap dancing. It was a good experience 
because I had never done Children's 

Some of the funniest parts of the 
play was when Lucy took a survey 
about her crabbiness. Another scene 
was when Snoopy was flying on the 
top of his dog house and was trying 
to shoot down the Red Barron. 

"Your a Good Man Charlie 
Brown" was brought to life by Kim 
Roden as Patty; Tony Gardner as 
Charlie Brown; Rachel Oliveros- 
Larsen as Lucy; Matt Powell as 
Snoopy; Harry Garland as Linus; 
Christopher Marm as Schroeder, 
Michelle Levine as Linus' Blanket; 
and Danielle Gunn and Dawn 
Williams as the Suppertime Dancers.

Frosh Orientation 
1996 was called 
Fresh Start. Past all of 
the necessities of 
being a college fresh- 
man, the class of 2000 
haci other things to do 
that were just as 
important. They had 
many questions. How 
does voicemail work? 
Where is Taco Bell? 
Peer Advisors, Faculty 
Mentors and Student 
Life Mentors were all 
ready to help. 

At Playfair Peer 
Advisors and frosh 
alike let loose to have 
a total blast. There was 
back-to-back dancing, 
live sculptures, and a time for 
everyone to strut their stuff 
while the group chanted their 
name. The point was for 
everyone to have fun and 
remember that even in col- 
lege everyone needs to take 
time to play. 

For the second year in a 
row the freshman class has 

participated in the annual 
painting of the white 
CLU rocks on Mt. Clef 
Ridge. Freshman Sommer 
Embree recalls, "I met Sara 
'Beracuda Moonbeam' 

Carlson while painting the 
rocks and now we're rock 
painting buddies!" 

During Froshfest each 

peer group was coupled 
with another to create a skit 
to be performed in front of 
the freshmen and transfers. 
Michael Feller said, "I 
mauled Trinity Mueller in 
our skit and her boyfriend 
was sitting in the front row." 
Freshmen learn quickly that 
CLU is a small world. □

or most students, Christmas Break 
was a time for relaxation, family, and 
friends. But for twenty nine students, the 
learning continued for three more weeks 
after fall semester's end. Students from a 
variety of majors toured Italy with 
Jerry Slattum, art professor. This trip 
introduced students to great art, awe-in- 
spiring architecture, and beautiful food 
throughout Italy, during one of the cold- 
est European winters in recent history. 

The tour started in Rome with visits to 
the Coliseum and Trevi Fountain. The 

Spanish Steps and the Piazza Paplo were 
popular on New Year's Eve. Other sites 
seen in Rome included the Sistine Chapel 
and Vatican City. 

Many other cities enjoyed were 
Venice, Sienna, and Verona. Everyone's 
favorite city was Venice. Mike Treiberg 
loved the trip because of Venice's charm 
and the "great food, great group and 
beautiful country." 

The trip was also unforgettable 
because of the architecture and the enter- 
tainment provided by Jerry. 

The Piazza del Campo is 

the focal point of the city 

because every July and 

August the Polio, a 

medieval horserace, 

draws thousands 

to the city.

R\ Icohol Awareness Week which ran 
Ln30ctober 6-10, 1996, was full of fun 
and education. The Executive Board of 
R.H.A. showed Leaving Las Vegas on 
Sunday evening in the Forum to show 
the consequences of the alcoholic 

Monday's lesson was given by the 
C.A.R.E. committee. In support of non- 
violent relationships they handed out 
purple ribbons for students and faculty 
to wear throughout the week. Velvet 
Terry, Michelle Levine and Rob Hill per- 
formed a skit and discussion was facili- 
tated by Erin Rivers, C.A.R.E. President. 
On Tuesday the hall councils of Old 
West and Pederson Halls presented 

"How to Party" in the SUB. Old West 
gave tips on having a safe party and 
Pederson provided Mocktails. Everyone 
had fun dancing to the music, drinking 
mocktails and hanging out with friends. 
Amy Waters, President of the Old West 
hall council said, "I hope we opened 
people's eyes but I doubt we changed 
their minds." Wednesday was "The Real 
Game of Life." 

Thursday New West and Thompson 
Halls threw a 70's party at the Need to 
give an option for a sober evening. They 
held a costume contest and a dance 
contest. Many people felt that this was 
the most successful Alcohol Awareness 
Week in years. □

/^ al Luis is known by many for it's 
c: various student activities. In fact, it 
is ranked as having the number one 
student activities program in the west 
coast colleges. The various activities 
include. The Need, Lu Down, Home- 
coming, The Dating Game, guest 
speakers, and socials. One thing that 
always adds excitement to student life 
is the different bands. 

One opportunity for bands was at 
the Reggae Fest where World Tribe 
performed. They also played later that 
night at The Need. In addition to World 
Tribe, The Need also has other bands 
throughout the year. Some of these 
bands include Blimp and Your Moose 
(which was formerly known as Timber).

wm-.: : 


With a new head coach, the loss of 
some key seniors and the addition of a 
large group of freshman, the Kingsmen 
football team had their hands full this sea- 
son. The Kingsmen finished with 4-5 

The pre-season began with a trip to 
Coronado called "Break Away" where 
players found themselves doing everything 
but football and forming strong team ties 
that would last the season. "I was iffy 
about Coronado at first, but 1 ended up 
really liking the atmosphere," said Kevin 
"Smiley" Lyons, a freshman from Bakers- 

Coach Scott Squires named the "Break 
Away" as one of the highlights of the sea- 
son. He added the University of San Diego 
game and the Occidental and Menlo 
College games to the list. "The last game 
against Menlo was great. We played with 
enthusiasm. That's the kind of team 1 want for 
next year." 

A surprisingly successful group of players 
this year were the freshman. Many were handed 
starting positions due to some critical injuries. 
Jermaine Dixon, a wide receiver from Pasadena, 
finished the season with 18 catches and was the 
No. 1 freshman receiver. Tony Weak, an offensive 
lineman from Camarillo, and Lyon, a defensive 
back, saw a lot of playing time as well. 

Squires argues that the season could have 
been different had there been less injuries. "I 
turned around at the Redlands game and saw 16 
guys in street clothes. I told them to take all their 
healthy parts and put them together 'cause were 
gonna need them for the game." One of the most 
devastating losses was tailback Fredrik Nanhed, 
who pulled his hamstring during pre-season 
practices. He was unable to regain his true form 
until more than half the season was over, but 
did manage to rush for 178 yards on 22 carries 
against Menlo in the final game of the season. 

Other injured players were defensive end's, 
Kyle Donovan, and Jason Cowles as well as Jon 
Ferguson, a running back from Bakersfield and 
David Aranda, a linebacker from Redlands. All 
were required to have surgery. 

Squires was blessed with an aggressive 
defense which included, seniors Manuel Cantero, 
Justin Monical, Mario Guerrero, Will Plemons, 
David Jaglowski, Stan Rohn and Damon Barnett. 
Three outstanding defensive backs that have three 
more years to show their stuff are: Steve Perry, 
Andy Bartsch and Lyon. 

Squires hopes to better their record next sea- 
son. "I intend to win!" he said. No major changes 
are in the playbooks for offense or defense. With 
all the ups and downs of this season, the 
Kingsmen hope to balance out a winning record 
for next year. 

Quarterback Zock Hernandez #2, 
runs the option against Occidental.

the CLU Invitational here with visitors from Division I 
powerhouses such as USC, SDSU and other teams 
from SCIAC. CLU placed eighth at the CLU 
Invitational. At the SCIAC Multi-Duals Meet held in

him a spot in the pack at the NCAA division III 
championships. Colvin macie an outstanding finish 
at the NCAA finals held in Rock Island, 111. with his 
fastest 8.0 Km finish (26:02). Also, Kellie Stigile placed 

This year, the team was lead by a new coach, 
CLU alum, Brady Day. Day was a great choice as the 
new coach because of his familiarity with CLU and 
his commitment to its success. Overall, the team fin-

stronger finish next year.

The volleyball team consisted of 13 players (one 
freshman, one junior transfer, and eight returning 
players). The starting lineup included Karen Kasper, 
Light, Jennifer Pappas, Tracey Little, Liz Martinez 
and Mandy Stephens. There will be 11 players 
returning for the '97 season. 

"This year our team was physically stronger 
and had more depth. However, we were not near- 
ly as mentally strong as last year," Eaton said. 

Both Light and Eaton hope to see changes for 
next year. Light suggests that every player needs 
to work harder at practice, as though it were a real 
game. "I hope we become stronger in offense, due 
to the fact that we are losing our two strongest 
hitters," Eaton said. 

Overall, the 1996 volleyball season was a suc- 
cessful one. The team was like a family. They all 
had a lot of fun together on and off the court. 

Light was disappointed that the 
team ended the season with a loss, 
because that will be what they remem- 
ber. "It is frustrating to lose when you 
know that you are a better team," Light 

The team hopes to come back 
strong and in good spirits for the 1997 
season. They will be coached by Mr. 
James Park for a fourth consecutive

Men's Soccer 

Just as the Winter and Spring sports are starting, the 
men's soccer team is getting a well deserved break from an 
intense season. 

The Kingsmen won the SCIAC for the second time in a 
row this year. "I am very pleased with the season, and I am 
proud of the program," head coach Dan Kuntz said. The soc- 
cer team was 12-7 overall, 8-2 in conference. 

"Our goals for this season was first to win every game, 
second to win the SCIAC and third make it to the playoffs," 
Kuntz said 

Injuries have been a problem for the team this year. 
Key defender Edwin Astudillo experienced hamstring 
trouble throughout the season and offensive player Ryan 
Dobbins was out for the last two games. 

After winning the SCIAC for two consecutive years, 
and proving that they can play "up there" with anyone, 
the Kingsmen should finally get the reputation and 
respect that will get them a spot in the playoffs 

"Men's soccer in Southern California is very competi- 
tive," Kuntz commented. He also added, "To get the respect 
needed to be considered for a playoff spot takes time." 

"We have a very good team returning next year, Kuntz 
said. "Add a few quality transfer and freshman players and 
we will be even stronger than we were this year."

The women's basketball team was very suc- 
cessful this year. With an overall record of 15-10 
and a SCIAC record of 7-5, the team posted yet 
another winning season. 

Team members this year were Shelby Allred, 
Jenny Toler, Brandie Murrish, Michele Bennett, 
Joy Garcia, Keelee Faulk, Jennifer Hedger, Anita 
Richardson, Melissa Wood, Missy Rider, Heather 
Verner, Evi Orologas, Susan Stitt, and Monika 
Nagy. The team's scoring leader was senior Evi 
Orologa with an overall average of 16.9 points 
per game. Evi was also the leading rebounder 
with 9.1 per game. 

During the season, CLU had three players 

named to the Second Team AU-SCIAC; 

Murrish, Orologas, and Richardson. Murrish 
was named "Columbus Multimedia" West 
Region Player of the Week in January. She also 
had an outstanding performance against 
Occidental where she achieved a "triple-double."

Once again the Regals proved true to their 
outstanding SCIAC record of 70-1-1 during the 
last six years. 

The Women's soccer team ended an excellent f^';' 
season with the best record in SCIAC thanks to "the 
combination of people, desire and good times," 
head coach Dan Kuntz said. He also commented, 
"Anytime you have a group with 
strong leadership from the inside that 
come together with a passion to do 
well, you sprinkle it with a little fun 
and you'll go a long way." 

This team has had more MVPs, 
more All-West players, more goals 
scored and less goals scored against 
than any team in the conference. The 
Regals were in the NCAA playoffs for 
the fifth time in the last six years, 
ranked No. 2 behind National 
Champions UC San Diego, and ranked 
13th in the nation. 

The only losses suffered this sea- 
son were to national champion teams, 
UCSD and Cal State Domigues Hills. 
Holly Roepke, sophomore, and Jill 
Simmer, senior, each had 14 goals for 
the end of the season. Kim Holeman, 
junior, followed up with 12 and 
Chayna Manning, freshman, had 6 

The coach said, "They're a very 
accepting group who has some fun 
teasing and joking, but once they step 
across the line, they're a team.'" 

Kristin Taylor, sophomore defend- 
er said, "We support each other on and 
off the field and it shows in our play." 

The team is seen as always giving 
oppoutunities for growing. Kuntz 
believes, "Soccer is a piece of educa- 
tion, it's not everything. It does relate 
a lot to life though, with no time outs 
and having to problem solve while in 
the game."

With only one loss, Senior Mark Ellis (9-1), made a 
lasting impression on CLU for his last season of college 
tennis. Ranked number one in the pre-season, Ellis 
proved his abilities again this year after winning the 
1996 NCAA Division III Singles Championship. The 
NCAA Ail-American also helped the team earn the 
best record in SCIAC with an overall record of 9-2 and 
an SCIAC record of 4-1. Their only loss in the league 
was to Redlands. 

Every member of the team had winning sea- 
sons with other oustanding players such as Adam 
Nielson, who was ranked Number 25 in the region, 
and Jenia Karimov, who was ranked Number 5 in the 
nation at his junior college. 

Other team members included: John Cicone, 
Bryan Holloway, Kristjan Koik, Olatunde 
Osunsanmi, Carl Maloney, and Philipp Smaczny.

College champi-

With an overall record of 7-6 and 3-4 in the 
always-tough SCIAC, the CLU women's teruiis 
team had their work cut out for them and a chal- 
lenging season in 1997. Not intimidated by the 
daunting task, a number of the women players 
forged memorable seasons. 

Heather Szabo (9-3), Jill Embree (7-2), Karrie 
Matson (2-1), and Ingrid Becker (2-1) all experi- 
enced winning singles seasons as well as strong 
performances in their doubles tournaments. 

Team SCIAC wins were over La Verne (7-2), 
Whittier (6-3), and Claremont (5-4). This year, 
CLU played host to the SCIAC Championships. 
Jennifer Otto believed that the team was so 
strong because, "One of our team's best assets 
was the tremendous depth; if one of us could- 
n't play a match, we always had several players 
to draw from that could easily fill her shoes." 

Other team members included: Kaarin 
Benson, Kelly Chow, Michelle Faley, Diane Royer 
Alia Gustafson, Cindy Bear, Shane Andersen, 
and Jennifer Otto.

Based primarily on a 10-2 home record, the 
Kingsmen Basketball team finished the season at 17-8. 
CLU was 9-5 in SCIAC action. 

Richard Rider, the Men's Basketball Coach, stated, 
"The Kingsmen basketball team had good senior leader- 
ship. This united the team to win games." 

The squad was hurt by the loss of six varsity starters 
who graduated from last year's team. Filling the void 
were forwards Andy Saint, Brian Capella, and guard 
Christian Dunbar. Coach Rider had high expectations for 
these players this year. Capella led the Kingsmen in scor- 
ing with a 13.2 per game average. 

There were many new players on the team in 1996. 
With the focus on defense, the Kingsmen were able to put 
together another standout season to maintain their long 
winning tradition. 

"The talent was dominated by a few players last 
year, but it was spread out to many other players this 
season," said Chad Dueker, senior guard. 

Duker also stated that "winning championships was 
our final goal."

Head coach, Keisha Davis, is pleased with the CLU 
Softball team this year. She said that they were #1 in the 
conference with a record of 14-5-1. She also said, "They 
were an enthusiastic team who came back strong and 
played well with their backs against the wall. There 
were several very good pitchers this year such as 
Senior Gina Delianedis, Junior Kathy Proffitt, and 
Freshman Christine Halcomb." 

The Softball team's batting average was .329, 
while their opponents had an average of .283. The 
highest average for CLU, was held by Freshman 
Christine Halcomb (.500). 

CLU's biggest competition in SCIAC was from 
Claremont. Other non-league games against 
Chapman and UCSD proved to be tough competi- 
tion for the Regals. Their losses to Southern California 
College put the team's chances for playoffs in jeopardy.

This year's golf team was composed of four of the 

six members from last year and four new students. 

The coach this year, Jeff Lindgren stated, "We have a 

pretty good reputation, now they must make a team." 

In the past several years, CLU's golf team has done 

very well. Last May, 1996, it finished 16th in the 

country in Division III at the National Conference in 

New York. It also won the SCIAC for the fourth 

year in a row. 

One of the biggest events was the CLU 

Kingsmen Invitational, which was a one day, 36- 

hole tournament at the Wood Ranch Golf Course in 

Simi Valley. There were fourteen teams invited 

from California, Washington, and Oregon. Cal Lu 

came in second to Pt. Loma. 

Team members included: Rick Brown, 
Clint Elssemore, Jeremy White, David 
Richardson, Jon Manning, Jeff Karpman, Dave 
Bayles, Ken Seldeen, Lars Bruflat, Paul Kendrick, 
Eric Osthagen and Andy Withers. With ail but one 
player returning next year, the team has high hopes 
of repeating their outstanding performance.

"The Western Regonial Title is what we gun for every 
year." Curran commented. He also said that this is the 
third time that CLU has won this title. The other two 
years were times were in 1992 and 1993. 

The top newcomers this year are Junior Dave Ballon, 
Junior Bryan Erckenbrack, Senior Marco Marquez, and 
Junior Joseph Jauregui. 

"CLU baseball's toughest opponent this year was 
Chapman Univeristy" Curran says. Other tough oppo- 
nents this year included Claremont-Mudd-Scripts and 
Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. Despite this the year was suc- 
cessful with an team total average of 362 and Sophomore 
Eric Buben averaging the highest of 429.

Every year, the dance team gets better! This energetic 
group of girls really showed their stuff this season. The 1996-97 
Regal Dance Team consisted of four dancers. Some were brand 
new, and some returned for another exciting year of entertain- 
ing sports fans. Their dancing demonstrated a collaborative 
effort producing all of their own choreography and style. 

The dancers performed at football games with the cheer- 
leaders, basketball halftimes, and many other CLU events. The 
advisor of the dance team was Mrs. Robin Privat, and the mem- 
bers were Danielle Guiin, Dawn Williams, Teri Richards, and 
Ashlee Magdaleno. 

Overall it was a successful year with a lot of "dancing 
madness." The motto the dance team stuck by through the year 
of practices, sweat, and tears, was "WIMPY GIRLS SUCK!"

preparing for each football and basket- 
ball game. 

With a team nine strong, this diver- 
sified group of energetic students contin- 
ued to exemplify spirit and good sports- 
manship at CLU. 

The members this year were: Alison 

Adams, Wendy Becerra, Sherry Briant, 

Stephanie Cooley, Rachel Dennis, 

Sommer Embree, Becky Platts, Laura

The yearbook staff was hard at work 
throughout the year writing stories 
about events or taking pictures. Many 
long hours go into putting together a 
record of the year, but when it is done it 
is well worth it. 


This number one literary magazine was 
composed of student's art work and 
writing. Many pieces were turned in, 
but only a few were selected by the edi- 
tors. All their hard work paid off at the 
end of each year. The Editor responsible 
for evry thing was Robin Mitchell. 


The Echo is the newspaper of CLU. 
When it comes out every two weeks, 
not only does it cover the major events 
of CLU, but there are also close-ups on 
individuals, a look at the arts, religion, 
sports, and students opinions. The 
Managing Editor is Mike Wehn.

The 1996-1997 Kairos staff had many challenges to face this year, but with the help of many individuals 
we were able to publish a great book. I thank my staff, especially Belinda, Jen, and Trinity for giving up 
their sleep to help me work long into the night to meet deadlines. Because of the perseverance and help 
of John Reed, Jim O'Connor, and Josten's, we were inspired to make our last yearbook at Cal Lutheran 
the very best; we strove to make it interesting and exciting, but always keeping in mind the Christian 
foundation of our school. 

I hope that everyone who looks at the '96-'97 yearbook will take something positive away with them and 
I hope that they are inspired to Go Out Into AH The World in their own unique way...
